Brian Ogana, who stars as Luwi in the Citizen TV show Maria, says he has been heartbroken several times.
Speaking in an interview with Itugi TV, the veteran actor shared his relationship experience, saying he has encountered tribulations while dating.
“Every story has a background and I usually say, to be complete, you have to go through different encounters that will determine the kind of a man you become in future,” he said.
Brian said he loves girls who can challenge him intellectually while as a man he plans for the future.
Luwi added that it was humbling to be the main character in the programe and that it was one of the craziest he has ever played.
“But I say it’s God’s timing, grace and favour. It was sensational that people still remember about it.
At one point I ran mad, I was a mama’s boy, I was depressed. You can imagine combining all those characters. It was a roller coaster,” he said.
He said that the role was not easy and at one time, he had to lose weight just to fit in the role.
“When I was depressed that Maria was allegedly dead. I had to lose weight for me to fit that role. People don’t know that you need to de-role otherwise you can run mad.”
Brian said away from his popular role in the programme, he was also a news anchor at GBS media.
“I have done international documentaries and so many things before Maria.”
On how he felt after the programme ended, he said he was ready;
“Any good thing at one point it will come to an end. I had to prepare myself in advance so that when it ends, my life doesn’t have to stop. Most artiste assume that any project they touch, it will never come to an end. Everyday people are bringing new ideas. Don’t overstay in one place. Do your best and let people remember you.”
